Vallivue School District plans third middle school in Caldwell

 

Vallivue School District is planning to build a third middle school in Caldwell, and city officials helped them get one step closer Monday night.

Caldwell City Council voted to rezone over 37 acres along Smeed Parkway north of Highway 20/26 to allow the district to build the school. The land was zoned for community commercial development, and the council rezoned the property for low-density residential development.

The Idaho Press reports, some residents were concerned that the district would use part of the land to build single-family homes, but district officials say they plan to use all of the land for the new school.

The 37 acres is big enough to allow the district to build an additional elementary school, which would be the district’s eighth.

There is no custom code to display.
